It can be more than difficult to find the motivation to get to the gym and keep up with your New Year’s resolutions. But it’s time to make this the year you follow through. To help, we’re making this year’s journey more stylish with 13 picks that may actually inspire you to get dressed for the gym. No need to sacrifice your fashion sense; these picks are sure to provide you with both function and sophistication.

First tip? Brighten up. And we love strong prints, vibrant colours, and sporty accessories for doing just that. From technicolour shorts to ombre running shoes, brands such as American Apparel, Nike, Lululemon, and adidas are finding ways to spice up our stylish workout clothes.

As seen on the runway at Marc Jacobs for Spring 2013, bold black and white stripes make a strong statement. We love the idea of adopting this trend for yoga jackets and gear. For running fanatics, the latest sneakers have adopted new technologies that allow for more natural movement, while being elegant enough to wear outside of the gym. We’ve opted for pastel tints for a fresh take on the traditional running shoe.

When you look better, you feel better and the motivation comes easier. Click through to see all of our sporty and stylish workout wear picks.
